Just the beginning....

Feast your eyes on my new studio!
































Well, my future studio. We have a long way to go, but I'll be keeping you posted and may be asking now and then for a little feedback on some design choices. This is the view leading back up to the first floor...you can see the staircase to the left and a hallway on the right.

This is the view standing by the staircase. There will be double French doors replacing the existing door, which leads out to a pretty terrace and a lovely view of our enchanted wood. 

The room is 27x17 and will be where I do most everything but jewelry. It's also going to be where classes are held and little art shows of my work and students as well.

































The wide corridor to the right of the staircase will have a counter top and a hood vent where my kiln will live and the counter top will also be where any pyrography or anything smokey or fume inducing will be done since the venting will be good.

The doorway that you can see down the hall is a gutted half bath which will be (hopefully) transformed into a little jewel of a bathroom.
To the right of the staircase is another doorway leading to a really large room where the laundry is. It's also where my jewelry bench lives and is a home for the 2000-plus board feet of black walnut my husband is building things from. Including a fabulous 4 foot by 8 foot table I'll be using for teaching and making really big things on.

It's so exciting to begin this project...... I envision much laughter and creativity happening here!
I'll keep you posted!
Thanks for stopping by.
